the fall shoe trifecta
sporty ballerinas, red leather boots, penny loafers
Happy end of summer…a melancholic turn of the seasons. In honor of fall, a yearly subscription for The Molehill is on sale (from $80 to $60) from now through Friday night. Thank you for reading.
Are you excited for September? Growing up, I loved the anticipation of back-to-school season: buying a new Spacemaker and Galaxy Glue from Office Depot, unfolding the letter from school revealing my new schedule, and of course, picking out a first day outfit. The fashion world loves fall. I get it: seasonally, I believe it’s the ideal time to let your styling/layering skills shine.
I am giddy thinking about my fall shoe lineup. Who needs to get more time in the spotlight this year? Simone Rocha ballet platforms. My old standby? Nicole Saldaña mary janes. I do not need any new shoes. But as a fashion lover, shoes simply bring me a lot of joy. I allow myself to feel inspired by other shoes, consider how they might fit into my existing wardrobe. So I’m always keeping tabs on interesting new shoe designs every season. My ideal fall shoe trifecta would consist of three core styles: a sporty ballerina, a red leather boot, and a penny loafer.
Below, a shopping guide and styling ideas for these leaf-crunchers.
